MAKEUP | Revlon Mega Multiplier Mascara (Hmmm...)

T'is the year of mascaras and though I have mainly been using high end ones, drugstore mascaras don't seem all that different to me in terms of brushes and formulations. The Revlon Mega Multiplier Mascara* has been the talk of the town thanks to social campaigns from companies like Influencer and after reading some pretty terrible reviews, I think I am unfortunately going to have to add one of my own.

This mascara claims to have an "innovative formula combining fibers and 360° tube technology to plump and extend lashes". It is said to be smudgeproof, flake proof and water resistant, BUT removes easily with warm water. This is probably not going to be the best for those with watery eyes so I'd opt for one of Revlon's waterproof versions.

You know what? I liked the brush. I like small brushes because I have small eyes and not much going on in the lash department so huge brushes just lead to accidents in the mornings and more cleanup. The brush is slim and conical allowing me to see what I am doing and get to my inner corner lashes. The formula is actually quite buildable leading me to believe that plumping WAS indeed possible. By the time I had applied three coats and plumping action was yet to be seen, I called time of death on Mega Multiplier.

True to their claim, there was no smudging, flaking and it stayed locked on my eyelashes all day. There were no panda eyes here, but I felt like my lashes looked short and stubby. I have used mascara that truly lengthened (here) so I know it is possible!

Final verdict: This mascara looked so amazing from the Instagram selfies I was browsing, but it just didn't do it for me. I think you need to have thick lashes for this to be a good mascara because the plumping action requires a good lash foundation to begin with. Even if you have long lashes, this might not work if they are thin or wispy. So for me, brush was good, formula buildable, but just not for me. I think I will stick to my MUFE Smoky Stretch.
